Default Can 3.92 and LSD be separate in Ram orders?

Ok, so let me preface this by saying that my understanding of the 3.92 gear option code on all rams, was that it automatically included the Limited Slip. That is, the the 3.92 option was a LSD also.

But I noticed in the latest 2011 order guide for the tradesman ST models, 3.92 is listed separately as a $50 option, and Limited Slip is listed separately from that as a ~$200 option?

Do I have to check both option boxes or just the 3.92?

Hmmm.... that's a good question, I can't help ya but someone will be able to.

If I was to guess I would say check both options to be safe.

Wow, that is a good question. From every bit of research I did the 3.92 gears came with limited slip. I know that when you order the 3.92's the truck comes with a 245 mm rear axel. Here is how it's listed on the build sheet,

DMH 3.92 Rear Axle Ratio
DRNS 245MM REAR AXLE
DSAP Anti-Spin Differential Rear Axle

With the limited slip showing as a different code it would stand to reason that they could be ordered separately.

Beats me as well. I never saw a 3.92 that didn't have limited slip.

Very good question. I have not seen a 3.92 that wasn't an LSD either.

I'd check them both!!!!

I've just placed an order for my 2011 1500, and the sales guy asked if I wanted the LSD with the 3.92. So, apparently it's not automatically together in their DealerConnect (whatever it's called) program that they actually build the vehicle order on.

On the website when I was doing all my Build & Price, there never was an option to NOT have the LSD with the 3.92 selected. On my build sheet, I have two separate lines: Anit-Spin Differential Rear Axle $450 CAD & 3.92 Rear Axle Ratio $75 CAD - on the website it just lists the option as 3.92 for $525 CAD.

What you're saying makes perfect sense. Because you're right, on the website builder, it just combined LSD and 3.92 into one and adds the prices together. But when the dealer orders it for you they have to check both separately. What I think is that if the dealer tried to select 3.92 without LSD, the system would reject his order and make him add it.
